    preventing tack rubs

    I have just taken on the schooling of a lovely ex racer. It's all going well (knock on wood!) so far but he is starting to develop a few rubs. His tack is clean and soft, he is clean and soft but we still have rein rubs on his neck and the browband and/headpiece junction is starting to rub as...

    He looks like a grown up horse!

    He's a BWB so 3/4 TB and 1/4 Trakh. By Groomsbridge May out of a Fleetwater Opposition mare. Mum and Dad are both 15.2 ish . He's being very quietly ridden away just now so slowly starting to develop muscle.

    He looks like a grown up horse!

    Which scares me a bit as I still see him as a gangly yearling in my mind! My boy is now 3years 11months and finally doesn't look awkward anymore!

    13.2 Pony - what height sj and xc would be realistic?

    My first BS pony was 13.2 and he got to international level. Our fences were routinely 1m20+ and he hopped over like he had springs! I would suggest starting to introduce bigger courses at home or with PC instructor around.

    Video of my horse lunging...have a giggle!

    Cheeky boy! I recognise that noise as well. I don't know how to describe it really. Its not a snort but its a sort of rattly exhaled breath with every stride. My 4 yr old does it as well and that's normally my sign that something explosive is about to happen!

    curious behaviour

    I have two boys. Full brothers a year apart. The older one gets extremely jealous of anyone (especially me!) talking to his brother. Full on cranky face head nodding but as soon as you turn to talk to him its ears forward sweetness and light! I think they are capable of more emotion and thought...

    Okay, so who's hoovered a horse?

    I admit to also using a hairdryer and straightners .....I worked at a Fell pony stud and believe me they worked a treat on all that feather!

    Horse wont get up

    Im a particularly well spoken Glaswegian....shall I come and visit and do some carrot stick waving, horse whispering and I'll find out if he likes his blue bridle? I will only charge £650 per hour. Which is fellow Scot rates and obviously my horse whispering skills are much more valuable than that.

    Before and afters - Condition

    This was Bradley the day he walked off the lorry. Bought unseen as he was my boys full brother and I couldn't say no! I actually cried when I got his headcollar off and saw the mark it had left. Added into the lice, rainscald and being so underweight I was absolutely heartbroken for him...

    Not strictly CR! my baby eventer!

    I actually looked at him firstly because I always wanted a black horse! But then his breeding and nature shone through and he's my whole world!
